Health District Sends Letter to the New Grand Hotel

The Wichita Falls-Wichita County Public Health District sent a letter to the New Grand Hotel.  Newschannel 6 received a copy of the letter to get an update on what's happening.

The letter states that the hotel's lodging permit expired in November 2013 and that they still don't have a lodging permit.  The letter also reveals that the health district has become aware the hotel has been taking reservations for hotel rooms to be rented in August.  However, it's not permitted to operate as a lodging facility.  The health district also states there is no application on file for a lodging permit or request for any inspections.

There are 242 rooms in the hotel.  They have been reminded by the health district that 75-percent of the rooms must be available for rent in order to get a permit. 

The letter also said a routine high rise fire inspection was done on June 17th, 2013.  However, there were multiple deficiencies found during the inspection.  The hotel was given until July 1st to come into compliance.  Another inspection was done on July 3rd and they saw that no repairs had been completed.  Officials followed up on the inspection on July 17th and it revealed four violations issued by the fire department.

The letter was sent on July 18th, 2013 and when it was sent there were still issues in the fire suppression and notification systems.
